Karen WhelpdaleAfter 17 years at Mohawk Gardens, Mrs. Whelpdale is retiring or, as one student shared, she is leaving us because she is "very tired." :) In recent years, Mrs. Whelpdale has served as our Special Education Resource Teacher (SERT) providing support and guidance to many students and families and she will be greatly missed! Mrs. Whelpdale announced our annual year-end bingo over the announcements on our last day and, in keeping with MG tradition, Mrs. Whelpdale rang the bell in the hallway at dismissal time while we all cheered for her and the Gr. 6 students who were leaving.

We also gave our best wishes and goodbyes to Mme. Hladun (French), Mrs. Lang (Literacy), Miss Lopes (Gr. 2), Ms. Mills (Library Technician), Mrs. Podmore (ESL), Mrs. Santos (Planning) and Mr. Sowery-Quinn (Red Room Kindergarten), but we really hope they can return to Mohawk Gardens soon!
